These worlds children build in Minecraft aren’t just virtual. They are creating the very real culture of their time.
Yes, Minecraft is shaping a generation – just as PacMan, Atari and Star Wars did. As is pointed out, it is a global connection with people – all types of people – playing, learning, socializing and building relationships. But the game is also bringing together playing and learning. Having 4 boys playing and learning as they build, connect, share, destroy(yes they do that), invent, create, challenge, reshape, remodel,….. has reenforced for me that having fun and learning can happen at the same time.
